This week Tyler and Dakota discuss the Saffir-Simpson scale and a different way to classify hurricanes with Stephanie Pilkington. Stephanie is currently a PhD student in civil engineering at Colorado State. She earned her bachelor's and master's in civil engineering from Virginia Tech and Colorado State, respectively. Her current research works on improving loss estimates due to hurricane damage based on an artificial neural network framework. To learn exactly what that is, take a listen to our conversation with Stephanie on SoundCloud, iTunes, or below.
